Ortiz: I am the million dollar man

 

Following his July 2012 loss to Foffest Griffin, Tito Ortiz announced his retirement from the sport of MMA. Fast foward a year and now out from under any contract with the UFC, Ortiz will return to fight again, this time in Bellator. So what's different now? At least according to Ortiz, it's his health:

“My last surgery was 12 weeks ago. I had an ACL replacement,” said Ortiz.

The ACL replacement was in his right knee. Ortiz had his left knee repaired in the past.

He healed up quickly, however, which made the Bellator deal possible. 

“I was back at it in a month-and-a-half,” recounted Ortiz. “In a month-and-a-half, I was back at it, drilling again. My body heals super, super fast.”

I just feel good. Now I am the million dollar man.”

That's weird. Alex Rodriguez just said the same thing in his post-game press conference.

ACL? At least 8 months to fully recover, sometimes more.

LOL.

Came here just for this. Also the excuse is there before the fight even began. Cant wait until its "I came back from a gnarly ACL replacement surgery too fast."

Does that fact give you an erection?
It's having the exact effect Bellator was looking for. The Rampage vs Tito PPV will overshadow anything McUFC's does for the rest of 2013. Phone Post 3.0

You really believe this?

Similar to how Tito copied Bobby Hoffman in naming his two fists TNT and dynamite in a smack talk with Couture back in the day Phone Post 3.0
